Only one of seven cashier counters was open, resulting in a long queue. When the cashier didn't give him a valid answer, he ordered the ice cream and placed them on the counter.
It took 42 soft serve cones to 'cool down' a fuming customer.
On Nov 12, a man visited a KFC outlet in Guiyang, Guizhou, China during the busy lunch period.
Although there were many customers, only one out of the seven available cashier counters was open, reported Chinese media.
The man reached the counter after queuing for 15 minutes. He told the employee about the long wait and did not receive a satisfactory answer.
In a fit of anger, he decided to purchase 42 soft serve cones and placed them upside down on the counter.
Some staff members looked at a loss as to how to react to the whole debacle, while some stepped in to stop others from taking photos.
Netizens have uploaded and shared photos of the incident multiple times on various social networking platforms from Weibo to imgur.
KFC China posted a statement on their official Weibo account on Nov 12, apologising for not providing quality service. They also added while they were not trying avoid their mistake, but they hope that others would not waste food in such a manner.
In September, a Beijing man saw an employee preparing burgers without gloves at a KFC outlet in Wuhan. After staff at the outlet did not handle his complaint over food safety adequately, he decided to protect potential customers and warn others about the food by buying 2,000 buckets of chicken.
Sounds like a dick. Wasting all that ice cream, too.

Well, you never know... I mean, don't forget about the Irishman who made his bean soup with 239 beans.
(One more bean and it would have been "too farty".)
“I scream, you scream... well, you know the rest.”
We’re destroying China from the inside out.
43 would just not do and here is why:

It was calculated by the computer Deep Thought for seven million years and when asked to build a better computer to discover the Question to the Life, the Universe, and Everything, it built the Earth. Before the Earth could tell the Question however, it was destroyed by the Vogons to make room for an interstellar highway bypass. For more information, see The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

All you ice cleam berong to us
Yet, it seems through the entire thing, not one employee stepped up to open more cashiers to move the line along. If he paid for the ice cream, they're his to do with what he pleases. He didn't destroy anything property or assault anyone. Yes, he made a mess but no more than a bratty 4 year old. Also noted that no employee stepped up to clean the mess before it spread across the counter and melted down onto the floor.
